Mary-Kate Olsen On Being Sexy, Sister Ashley And Heath Ledger

Posted: Updated:

Mary-Kate Olsen is on the July cover of Elle and inside she dishes all things except the death of her friend Heath Ledger.

On the controversy surrounding Heath Ledger's death:
"I'm not going to comment on that, I won't give you a word about that in the nicest way possible. Let's move on."

On celebrity:
"It's weird to be called a celebrity or talk about it. I don't talk about being a celebrity in my business meetings. I don't talk about it with my friends. It's not a part of my life. It's a media perception of who I am. It's very weird. I mean, if I see a paparazzi shot of me walking that's in a magazine or something at some event, it's as if I see it from an outsider's point of view. There's like a character, almost, and then there's me.

On twin sister Ashley:
"We don't agree all the time. The way we go about business or designing or making a decision is that we come at it from two completely different angles that at the end of the day, even when we don't think we're agreeing with each other, we are agreeing. We're just getting there in different ways. Unless you're a twin, you honestly can't know how close twins can be. There's such a strength, but that also makes it..." Her voice trails off. "When there's that much love there's...Well, there's the opposite of everything, but it stems from love, and it stems from passion. We're driven people. I do know I can't work in an office. Ashley, on the other hand, loves going to an office."

On being sexy:
"I feel like I can be sexy when I want to be," she says. "I think all women are sexy. Some may feel it more than others. I personally think the women who are the most sexy are the women who are truly themselves, whatever that may be."

On her fashion:
"I don't know--you're either on the worst-dressed list or you've started a fashion trend. I think there's a real disconnect between the media's perception of fashion and the fashion world's idea of fashion. I don't know why I wear some of the things I wear. I like wearing crazy things sometimes. I like being playful. Sometimes I feel like I'm playing dress-up and becoming a character. It's sort of like an art. It can change your mood or the way that people are attracted to you."
